- All come with either wireless or network connectivity
HOME and business IT peripherals company Brother International has launched nine new printers which it said are designed to meet the operational needs for home users, schools, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
“In the past decade, the size and price of laser printers have reduced considerably – and it has given us an opportunity to tap into a fast-growing market for home and small enterprise businesses,” said Itsuo Segawa (pic above), director and country head of Brother International (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.
Three of the new Brother models – the HL-1210W printer, DCP-1610W Multi-Function Centre (MFC) (without fax) and MFC-1910W (with fax) – offer enhanced wireless capability, allowing users to enjoy wireless connection with the ability for mobile printing using Apple’s AirPrint or Brother’s iPrint&Scan apps.
The printers offer hassle-free printing technology that prevents paper jams, delivers up to 1,000 pages of high-quality prints, and with separate replacements for toner cartridges and drums, Brother International sad in a statement.
All three models come up a three years carry-in warranty, it added.
The other two mono laser printers – the HL-L2360DN and HL-L2365DW (pic) – and four MFCs – the DCP-L2540DW (without fax), MFC-L2700D, MFC-L2700DW, and MFC-L2740DW – come with enhanced features for long-term reliability and efficiency, Brother International said.
The MFCs (DCP-L2540DW (without fax), MFC-L2700DW, and MFC-L2740DW) come with wireless capability with a print capacity of 30 pages per minute and a ‘Deep Sleep’ power saving mode, saving electricity and making them environmentally friendly.
All nine Brother models come with either wireless or network connectivity for easy-to-manage printing.
Also, the WiFi Direct ‘wireless models’ connect mobile devices directly to the machine for instant printing via the use of Brother’s apps, without the need to hook up to a computer or via wireless network.
